How many of you knew that San Diego International Airport has a Book Club? Maybe not many… we’re a well-kept secret! It’s time we shared the good news!
For a recent book, our little Book Club joined the ranks of the “One Book, One San Diego” program, a partnership between KPBS and the San Diego Public Library Foundation. The program brings San Diego County residents together to read and discuss the same book.
The book selected by this program is The Gangster We Are All Looking For, by Lê Thi Diem Thúy. The story, about the Vietnamese immigrant experience here in San Diego, intrigued us. We also wanted to learn more about how the One Book, One San Diego program works. We met on Thursday, February 24 to discuss the book, and we even talked about going to hear Thúy speak about the book and her experiences growing up.
